Q: A really hot guy I met at a club a couple of weeks ago invited me to go down the Shore with him. I don't know him that well, but I'm super-psyched. I'm also a little nervous because he says he wants to have sex in the hotel pool and also the hot tub, which sounds super sexy, but how's that going to work with a condom?
Mia: Don't do it, girl. For starters, do you really want all that chlorinated water pushed where the sun doesn't shine? And until you're in a monogamous relationship with a guy whose HIV status you know, you really should avoid pool or hot-tub sex because chlorine can cause condoms to degrade. Then there's the problem of possible slippage caused by water getting inside the condom. It could slip off while you and your hot honey are making so many waves that neither of you even notice.
